What is the purpose of life?

Another take on 45*... given his totalitarian tendencies, the comparison is quite justified; Godwin's law doesn't apply here.'45' drawn in black on a white background at an angle, resembling a Nazi swastika, inside a red 'no' or 'prohibited' circle-slash

Trickle down economics - How we’re told it works (bottle pouring wine into the top glass of a pyramid of six; the wine spills over and completely fills the other five glasses) - What actually happens (bottle pouring wine into the top glass of a pyramid of six; the wineglass keeps expanding and expanding, and the other five glasses remain empty)(Of course, after the revelations concerning Russian prostitutes, our Republican PEEOTUS gives other meanings to the term as well!)
